Smartphones have been becoming more expensive over the years, and it looks like LG wants to go ahead and jump as far ahead of the pack as possible.
This isn’t a super rugged phone or a device that’s rocking some Lamborghini branding. LG calls its newest smartphone the “Signature Edition”, and it boasts a remarkable $1,800 price tag. It appears to be a luxury edition of the LG V35 ThinQ.
For that price tag you’ll get a phone with a 6-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2800×1440 and a 18:9 aspect ratio. There is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood, 6GB of RAM, and 256GB of built-in storage. There is a microSD card slot included, too. LG’s new Signature Edition phone offers a pair of 16MP cameras on the back, one of which is a 107-degree wide angle lens. Also included is Android 8.0 Oreo and a 3300mAh battery.
The Signature Edition has audio tuned by Bang & Olufsen, and the phone comes with a pair of Beoplay H9i wireless headphones which retail for $499 in the United States. The back of the phone is made of Zirconium Ceramic and features a fingerprint reader.
There are only 300 units of the LG Signature Edition smartphone being made, and it’s on sale right now. It’s priced at 1,999,800 won ($1,790 USD). If you do buy one, LG will let you have your name engraved on the back of the handset and on a leather wallet case.
So, who’s forking over the cash to pick up LG’s new Signature Edition phone?
